Shorts: Roger Dixon-Spain, Lismore, Scotland

Farmerama

Roger Dixon-Spain farms with his wife, Gilly, on Lismore, a 10-mile long island in the Inner Hebrides, just off the west coast of Scotland. Roger spent most of his life as a conventional farmer in Cambridgeshire, before a series of chance events led him to Lismore – and to a radically different approach to farming. Here, Roger traces that journey, introduces us to the concept of “holistic land management”, and explains how he and Gilly are building a viable business on marginal land – as well as preparing the ground for the next generation of farmers.Find out more about Roger, Gilly and their work at www.lismoregrassfedbeefandlamb.co.uk. Roger recently gave a webinar titled “Starting my Life’s Work at 70” – available here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DcpZ1net3f0&feature=youtu.be
